Mid Stomach cramping at 5 weeks and 2 days pregnant, what could it be?
I am pregnant with my 4th child due October 19th, making me 5 weeks and 2 days today. I know a little cramping is normal from my last 3 children, but this is the third time in the last few days that I have had cramping in my middle stomach area, not my pelvic area. I'm just wondering if it is normal to cramp in the middle of the stomach during this part of pregnancy, if it is a sign of me overdoing myself, or if it could mean something else?
The reason I ask if it could be overdoing myself, is because since Thursday I have been spring cleaning, Thursday i completed sorting my whole living room, Friday I sorted the entire kitchen, Saturday I was really sick with a cold (2 of my 3 kids had the flu last week), and yesterday only did dishes and laundry. During those days I had mid stomach cramping at night. Except Saturday because I was too lazy to do anything not feeling well. Today I was feeling slightly crappy because my throat is hurting slightly but decided to try and sort through my daughters toys, well not even 20 mins into it I noticed the cramping again and it the middle stomach, it started hurting pretty good and since I have had issues with my back since December I decided to sit and relax because I feel wierd before my back spazes. And now the cramping in the middle stomach is still coming but its eased up alot and not as sharp, which makes me believe I should just relax. I just would like other mom's opinions on, if this just happens during pregnancy sometimes, if its a sign of overpushing myself, or if it could be something else. I want as healthy of a pregnancy as possible so input would be greatly appriciated
